    Hi, can you please post ATTO screenshots for 960 PRO and also Toshiba?

    960 PRO should be considerably faster, especially in writes I hope. I ask because I am soon going to buy 970 PRO 1TB or ADATA xpg sx8200 pro, which should be pretty much in the neighbourhood of 960 PRO and I have no way to see how it will perform in Alienware 13 r3.

    Thank you in advance.

    Has anyone got issues with the battery wear going up really fast? My previous battery jumped from 2% to 14.5% in the span of 2 months and the new replacement installed early December has already jumped from 2% to 7%. This is like after 1 discharge cycle since I mostly use this machine plugged in.

    The same. I have wear level @ 12%, always plugged in, but last time (a week ago) battery was showing 2:50 hours left and 'crashed' after 5 minutes to 0% lol during light desktop work, installing drivers etc.

    I have the same battery since purchase in November 2017, pretty disappointing.

    Papusan uses v1809 Win 10 Pro after it was released in October.

    Get the Adata XPG 8200 Pro or WD Black 2018 edition.

    I didn’t realize he had it. I always see him rip into the download and telling everyone to not install it.

    Nearly everyone installed it. I'm on v1803 until MSFT pulls the plug on 2020. I simply don't want features which will be removed later.

    So far I have no issues at all but it took a lot of tweaking to get it where it is now but that comes with any major windows version updates. For those who expect it to run exactly the same after a major windows version update without fixing drivers and settings will encounter many issues.

    Redstone to redstone needs no clean install and an upgrade will do. MSFT doesn't recommend clean install option like they did for TH2 and other releases.

    Hi,

    I ran ATTO on my 970 Pro 1TB. I put power settings to max performance, which should keep CPU at max speed all the time. I also shut down all applications. The SSD is using Microsoft drivers because Samsung Drivers would not work 100% reliably in Win 10 1809. The drive is also my OS drive.

    Ran also the same benchmark for 960 Evo 1TB:

    Try this software in admin mode https://github.com/CHEF-KOCH/MSI-utility/releases
    Change stornvme value from 65 to 2047 and then press enter/apply and reboot to re-run ATTO disk benchmark. You might see an increase in write speed just like Samsung NVMe drivers using native nvme driver.
